Its atomic nature (based on OSTree) forces you to rely heavily on VMs and containers, keeping a clean and secure base OS.

I'm seriously considering switching to @teamsilverblue once F29 is released, if I manage to migrate my i3wm environment to it (needs some layered RPMs).

Pixel 2/2XL AVB (Android Verified Boot) allows you to burn your own public key for both image and dm-veritas signature verification.

*This* is how Secure Boot should be implemented *everywhere*. It can't be a question of freedom vs. security, you should be able to get both.

In other words. If I had no option but live in a privative walled garden, at least let it be the one with the best security and privacy features.

Let me tell you something about Android vs. iOS. If I couldn't run AOSP/LineageOS w/o Google Apps on my phone, I would be using an iPhone.

Every time I see a "Linux Evangelist" presenting on a macOS, I die a little on the inside.

Nice! is *almost* able to work with runtime. I'm going to take a look at some minor nuisances to see if I can fix them.

What's the best way to help @fdroidorg ?

I've read their page about contributions, but there are already plenty of pending merge request in their repo. Not sure if creating more would help or just make things worse.

Submitted #RocketChat app to #fdroid. Should be available there in a few days.

I've reached a point in which I can easily read and understand Rust code, and I'm going to stop here.

I didn't become a big fan of this language during the journey, for pretty much the same reasons I'm not a fan of C++ either.

FFS, if Rust's syntax was any more ugly and shady, it'd be a member of Trump's cabinet.

If you're a developer, you should really watch this: "How we fit an NES game into 40 Kilobytes"

I don't personally know this guy, but I love him and his hard-to-find combination of common sense and pragmatism.

As expected, spammers are abusing domains that don't have a defined SPF record in their DNS, using them as origin for their emails.

Well, updating my sieve rules to put all "Received-SPF: None" emails into the junk folder.

Fortnite is using libcurl. Is there a credit/ending screen or somewhere in-game where it says this? If so, can anyone make a screenshot for me? (for a presentation of mine)

On AOSP I was missing the "double-tap on the statusbar to lock" feature from LineageOS.

Luckily, it was very easy to port :-D

Building and signing a (working!) AOSP release has been easier than expected.

Now I just need to integrate @fdroidorg , apply some minor changes here and there, and ready to go!

This is one of those bugs you never expect having to open one day:

"LWP flag missing from CPUID on AMD Opteron 6xxx (cpu_family 15h) running ucode 0x06000852"
